Tips for keeping in touch via Facebook

One of the ways that people stay in touch with Matthias Media is through 'Liking' our Page on Facebook.

Unfortunately, on Facebook that doesn't necessarily mean you'll see our posts. Facebook uses complicated ways of working out what it thinks you want to see.

But there are a few ways you can tell Facebook that you want to see our news (or the news from any other Page for that matter): (1) tell Facebook how you want to prioritize our posts; and (2) engage with our posts when you see them.

Tell Facebook how you want to prioritize our posts

Assuming you have 'Liked' the Matthias Media Page (by clicking the 'Like' button), you can still take some extra steps. Firstly, you can make sure you are 'Following' our Page. Secondly, you can choose to 'Get Notifications'. And thirdly, you can make our posts appear first on your news feed.

If you choose to 'Get Notifications', and we post something on our Page, you will be notified through the Notifications menu (the little earth icon at the top of the Facebook page):

Facebook notifications

To 'Get Notifications', simply go to the Matthias Media Page, hover your mouse over (or tap if using a touch screen device) the 'Like' button. This will bring up a menu, which includes the 'Get Notifications' option.

But in addition to Notifications, you can also tell Facebook you want to give our posts a bit more priority in your news feed. To do this, hover over the 'Follow' button on our Matthias Media Facebook Page, and select 'See First'.

Engage with our posts

The other way to indicate to Facebook that you like getting our posts, is to engage with those posts: clicking to like the post, sharing it, or commenting on it, are all ways you can do this. (When you do this it not only increases the chance that Facebook will show you our next post, it also means Facebook will show the post to more people because it increases the value of the post in the algorithms that determine which posts Facebook prioritizes.) Visiting the actual Matthias Media Page frequently also is a way of telling Facebook that you are interested in our posts.

Of course, there's a bit of a chicken and egg problem here: you need to actually see our posts in order to engage with them. So it might be helpful to turn 'Get Notifications' on, engage with Matthias Media's posts for a few weeks, and then try turning off the notifications (if that is your preference) and continuing to engage.

Thank you for your interest in Matthias Media. We hope these tips make it easier for you to stay up-to-date with our news.
